I am playing with my Octopus only for a couple of days now – great instrument! – and I found a few things which I’d like to be able to do (perhaps I just have to change my workflow – but on the other hand if this is possible already it would be a big help):
– I’d like to assign different midi-channels (send) to consecutive steps in one track;
for example: step one plays instrument responding to channel 1, step two plays instrument responding to channel 3…
– I’d like to be able to play only one note in a track (and then ‘switch off’ this track), but play all other tracks on the same page full length
– I’d like to play one track only once, the others on the same page either to their full length (chained tracks) or multiple times (page length setting)
The actual task I try to achieve this time is triggering quite long (30-45 seconds) audio-samples in one step, while having the surrounding steps trigger different instruments.
Actually, you can play with step events, using the midi channel attribute, to send different midi channels per step. It’s kind of fun, actually, when used in conjunction with the effector and the pos step events…
